How to hook up electrical? 220v single phase? What color wires on which connections of the plug?


Identify the prongs. If you have wired a 110-volt fixture or plug, then you are aware that the different prongs connect to different colors of wires. The same principle holds true for 220-volt plugs, and this is very important to keep from tripping the circuit breaker. A three-prong plug will connect to two colored wires that each supply 110 volts and a bare copper wire which is the ground. One of these colored wires will be black, while the other one should be red, white, or blue. The four-prong plugs connect to a black and a red wire that each supply 110 volts, a white neutral wire, and a bare copper ground wire.

Oven locked with door open how do I reset it?


my first thought is if the oven is standard 220 three or four prong electric, for safety, go to breaker switch panel,"in House or outside of house", open pannel door and find the breaker switch marked for "oven" or "kitchen utility" . it will be a double switch of 20 to 25 amp ,"each". or it will b One breaker switch of 45-50 amp. ,switch it to off. then see that the oven has no power, the stove top as well as the lights and the oven .try to unlock it now. by lever or button ? then if not unlocking turn the breaker back on and try it again. hope it works for you.

Power feed in 208vac-1phase, is this a true single phase 208 & neutral or 2 120vac feeds 1 on Z and 1 on X ?


208 is usually referred to as a singe phase but technically it is poly phase. The industry refers to it as single phase as it is uses one line as power and the other as "Common", not neutral. If the plug has 3 prongs, It is 2 lines of power and an earth ground. If the plug has 4 prongs, It is 2 lines of power, one neutral, and one earth ground. Let me know if you need more.

I am replacing a 4 prong cord which is red, white, black, green with a 3 prong all black cord. My stove is a Maytag which was originally wired with a 4 prong pigtail for use in a trailer. I want to replace...


Okay, without knowing everything I would need to know; here's what I propose you do. First of all, are you exchanging the same wire size cord (eg. #12 stranded wire for 20 amp, and #10 for 30 amp, #8 wire for 40 amp,  # 6 for 50 amp, and so on) for the same application (ie. 30 amp for dryer, and 50 amp for range, etc.) ?  Let's say you are, so what you want to do is take the 4 prong off (one by one), and write down the configuration and color, as you take off each wire. And then you're going to apply this to your 3-prong plug. So, without seeing the plug and its application - I'm going to explain to you how to wire this. First, put the black (hot leg) wire will go on one of the straight prongs - and the red (the other hot leg) wire will go on the other straight prong. Now cut the white wire down to about an inch, so it can fit into the plug when you're putting the cap back on. And remember to tape this white wire with electrical tape. This is for many reasons, but its basically for safety. Now, the remaining wire (green) goes to the right-angled prong - which is your ground wire. Now your wired for 240 volts, and depending on the size of the wire - your wire size shall be in accordance with the amperage that I explained earlier. Now make sure that your power is off at the panel before you plug this oven plug into the wall. Then, turn the breaker on, then off. If everything seems okay, plug the cord into the wall (with the oven off) - and then turn the breaker back on. Then proceed to turn your oven on from there, and then if everything checks out okay, then your good to go. Good Luck with this, and I hope this works out for you. If not, feel free to contact me again. - Jim

3 wires black white ground from box from oven red black white ground what goes where


the appliance is 220 volt and the box you are describing is 110 volt. You cannot connect to this box. You need a new 220 volt circuit ran from your main panel box to the appliance with a 220 volt 3 prong outlet box like an electric dryer uses or make the connections in a box without using the plug system

Kenmore ultra self cleaning oven or top heat


I found that the 220 plug had burned out, that was where the smoke came from. The display worked because the ground "prong" was the only one burned. Had to replace the electrical 220 socked and the electrical plug on the oven.
